(CNN) - Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann called on social conservative voters not to settle for a moderate Republican nominee in 2012, a line she has used repeatedly on the campaign trail.
"Don't listen to these people, who every four years tell you we have to select a moderate from our party and we have to settle for the sake of winning," Bachmann said at the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Friday. "I am here to tell you we are going to win. This year, we don't settle."
At the conference, largely attended by Christian conservatives, the Minnesota congresswoman shared how her faith played a role in her fight against abortion.
She added that she introduced legislation in Congress on Thursday that would require women considering an abortion to hear and see the heartbeat of the fetus before making a decision.
"We believe that each person - man, woman, black white - no matter the economic circumstances, is made in the image and sacred likeness of the Holy God," she said.
Of all the GOP presidential candidates in the 2012 election cycle, Bachmann has been one of the most outspoken against abortion, hitting hard against President Barack Obama's health care reform for including funds for abortions in the event of rape, incest or if the life of a woman is in danger.
"As president, I'll put our government out of the abortion industry, once and for all," Bachmann said.
Bachmann said she's determined to press on in the fight for social conservative values. Bachmann has long been a darling of the tea party movement, which has mostly shied away from social issues.
"With a proven fighter in the White House, we will finally win on the issue of life, on marriage, on family," Bachmann said. "It's time that we score some victories for our movement."
